OK, here is the problem and don't forget i am not very knowedgeable with computer or wifi terminology etc.
I have a wifi system with one server and two routers. One router serves the apartments that are nearer and the other router is for the apartments that are 50m away. Everything has been fine for two years but for the last week nobody can connect to one of the routers (coming up "disabled"). The other router is working perfectly. We have tried resetting, switching off and on , but it has made no difference. Any of you computer experts have any ideas?
Your suggestions will be much appreciated . Thanks in advance!
Hi VTers! We've expanded our redesign to CCR (Continent, Country, Region/State) level pages and your tips on CCRs are now exposed (previously hidden with old design) and have the beautiful Single Tip format (which provides great opportunity for google referrals and increased page views).
We hope you will check it out and as always we look forward to your feedback!
It seems that there is something major on the way in middle Italy! Three earthquakes in short times, the one of this morning destroyed a lot in the village of Norcia, including San Benedetto church and monastery :-(
What frightens me is the list of quakes, the Italian earthquake centre lists:
Every 5-10 minutes in the region of eastern Umbria and western Marche :-((

A big "Thank you" to the attendees of the Big Aussie Meet for this wonderful surprise! It made my day!
Do you bother?
We are expecting 100+ kids on Monday night, doing simple cornflake/rice crispie buns with popping candy and little marshmallows.
It will be a long night :o)
Hey peeps, - Some of you likely are aware, - but I find this website enormously entertaining. I quite love the fact that I am aware of many of the things and places, and also love the fact that I still have a lot to learn, and am still able to be surprised even though I am fairly jaded.
Halloween is almost here, and it has me thinking about ghost stories.
We stayed in an AirBnB in New Orleans last year, and I was convinced that the master bedroom was haunted. First of all, it was a very cold room - markedly colder than the rest of the house. You could feel the difference as you walked down the hallway; it was like entering a walk-in cooler.
Then there was the flashlight thing. I have an LED flashlight, with two beams and a built-in handle, that I've used for years because it's great for walking after dark. It was on the nightstand next to the bed and suddenly started flashing off and on. My flashlight doesn't have a strobe function. I kept pushing buttons, but it wouldn't stop. It flashed for several minutes and then stopped. It has never done that again and I use it daily.
Also, one morning when I got out of the shower, there was a sudden, strong scent of gardenias. I don't own anything gardenia-scented, and there was nothing in the bathroom that smelled like that. Also, the scent didn't fade gradually: it was there, and then it was gone. I got the impression of a benign female presence.
Do you have a real-life ghost story to share?
Hi, please excuse me if this question has been asked before. I did try doing a search on the problem. Anyway, I've been uploading my cover photo and although it looks okay whilst I'm logged in, it's disappearing when I'm logged out. It only appears when I view my profile page (logged in or out) in Internet Explorer. Has anyone else had this problem? I prefer Firefox. The cover photo is around 1800 x 500, I could crop it smaller but I don't like the pic then. Thanks in advance!
After Vogue published very good and interesting article about Macedonia becoming foodie destination many members keep commenting on it on my FB page.
Many ppl who attended the7th Euromeet in Macedonia always said that they had great time in undiscovered destination where their money go longer way.
To add to this Ohrid has been named 5th best destination worldwide to visit in 2017 by London Independent newspaper
Now I am seriously thinking of organising another meet and I would like to know your thoughts on it.
Would you be interested spending 4-5days on a trail of good food, even better wine and interesting history?
There are budget flight to Ohrid and Skopje from Europe so now is much easier to reach Macedonia.
I would like to know would you be interested if I organise meet for eather June or last week of August?
No, it's not what you think...see atlasobscura.com/articles/a-...
Hi All -
In a continued effort to get off our old code, we'd love for you to check out the new look to our city category pages (desktop, mobile and tablet)! For example:
Bangkok Warnings and Dangers - Bangkok Warnings and Dangers
Paris Things to do
Paris Things to Do
New York City Restaurants - New York City Restaurants
We've also added a new header to these pages as well as updated the header to the tip group pages and single tip pages. You will find this works on all devices. If you encounter any errors or bugs, please let us know!
We'd love to hear your thoughts!
I have been collecting old travel guidebooks since the 1960s. In those early days, I limited myself to spending no more than £1 per book - it was a lot of money for a teenager in those years. Once, I saw a pre-WW! copy of Baedekers Guide to Russia, priced £5. I did not/could not buy it (without bankrupting myself). Today, you would get no change out of £550 if you wanted to buy one. It's too late to regret not having broken my £1 rule.
Is there anything that you wished you had bought, but now cannot for any reason (not just price)?
PS by way of compensation, i did pick up a copy of Baedeker's Egypt (pre WW2, not a facsimile) for 30 pence. Now, you would have to spend at least 300 times this amount to get an original!
Is there something that you can't do that almost everyone else can do?
I will start.
I can't burp.
What to do about those of us who enjoy alternatives to a hotel? I stayed in an Airbnb last week. Sometimes I'm in a flat or cottage or B&B. I know the advertising support for VT isn't there, but some of us are not fans of big hotels and chain businesses.
2 days since I'm back from United States. Enjoyed my stay there, I know I will be back. But that's another story.
Well, Americans are known as very friendly nation, I confirm that, but that's also another story.
What really kept and keeps surprising me in Americans, up to stunning, is their 'cold-resistance', if can say so.
Lol, imagine, me, walking in polo and warm jacket, and long jeans trousers, and locals wandering in shorts & T-shorts, and girls in topics. I was clinging teeth when just looking at that. And not that they looked like people who just took wrong cloth by mistake and feel cold. NOWAY. They were relaxed and it was clear that they felt absolutely comfortable with that.
Americans, do you ever feel cold, lol ? does this notion exist for you ? if so, tell me how you manage that, I want to know, I feel envious, really !
Not much to say, the picture tells all.
Friiidaaayyyy!! Pub is open, and today's pubjoke: "I don't approve of political jokes...I've seen too many of them get elected."
With that I hereby declare the pub a political free zone.
Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool. I gave him a glass of water.
I changed my password to "incorrect". So whenever I forget what it is, the computer will say "Your password is incorrect".
Got any more funny jokes?
We have great wine sold all over EU and some parts of ex-CCCP, it's being called "California Ruby Cabernet".
The usual price is ca. $2 - $2.5. The wine is made by Gallo winery in California.
Right now I am in the States and I cannot find anything even close to that, neither in price, nor in (lack of) sugar.
The selection of non-sugar-daddy wines (for under $15) is quite limited and pretty much nothing local.
Last time (shame on me!) bought a Barefoot wine in France. That wine got a gazillion of gold medals, the price is very competitive and it is absolutely drinkable.
I can't find that Barefoot variety American wine in America... crazy.
Instead, all Barefoot sold here is super-sweet, basically undrinkable.
Can't wait to go back and get the real stuff... for reasonable price ;-)
Often we eat things in restaurants that we would like to try making at home. Sometimes waiters or even the cooks come to our table and describe the recipe, or try to describe it. Very occasionally, relying on this advice alone, we have managed to reproduce the dish in question. Usually, we have to resort to assistance from cookbooks. Recently in Berat (Albania), we were told exactly how to make a certain kind of 'qofte' (meatball), and the cook's recipe worked perfectly at home,
What is your experience?
Sorry, I went to edit this post and accidentally deleted it so trying again…
Our Sunday issue of the Star Tribune had an article about our larger cousin, Trip Advisor, and its booking site, Viator, dropping tickets sales for certain attractions in which "travelers come into physical contact with captive wild animals or endangered species, including but not limited to elephant rides, petting tigers, and swim with dolphin attractions." As Viator is a booking site for VT as well, I am assuming this is a win-win for all.
Along with discontinuing ticket sales, they're also initiating an educational portal which "will provide links and information on animal welfare practices, helping travelers to write more informed reviews about their experience, and to be aware of opinions that exist on the conservation implications and benefits of some tourism attractions"
This will not eliminate reviews from their members who visit such attractions but those will be marked with an icon that links to the portal.
Here's TA's full press release for those interested:
There's a nice plug for http://animalsaustralia.org on VT's FB page ("Ride Bikes, Not Elephants"), and we have members who've worked hard to educate about and dissuade from visiting attractions which are unhealthy/abusive for our finned/feathered/furry/footed friends so I'm sure this is welcome news for them as well the critters!
My photo has been entered in a contest on Tripmaster hoping to generate enough votes. I'm not sure if it is proper to post here, if not, please feel free to remove.
It is one of my all time favorite photos of Grand Teton which I've ever taken and I've been proud to see it displayed prominently on VT's home page.

Our company has attempted to add our business to your website several times. Over the past year or so our advertising folks have come in and added it, I've seen it, and now its gone (again). Wondering exactly what the procedure is for adding a transportation company to this website and allowing it to gather reviews? We are from Jacksonville, we see only three companies listed, one company is actually listed itself as the Jacksonville Airport, when in fact it is a transportation company, how funny. We just want to list our company as a service here to visiting customers. Is this a public site or not? Is there a procedure, a link, something that we should be referring to? Please advise. Thanks.
